This article is utter trash like the rest of Kotaku. Honestly it has become one of the biggest jokes in media as far as im concerned. They are always posting stuff like this to sound edgy but they just sound stupid and like their trying to make controversy about NOTHING.
Its a fucking video game people who cares who your killing.
This I can kind of see. I mean, what if there were a videogame where you played the invasion of Normandy.... from the perspective of a German machine gunner, mowing down intrepid Allied soldiers as they come ashore. I'm not the kind of person who is overly inclined to "rah rah team America" mentality myself, but even that seems a little unsettling
Though i agree the article is likely premature. At some point during ACIII, you'll have to kill a Patriot, i'm sure, just that Ubisoft is wisely downplaying it so they don't get Fox News coverage about "foreign-made games turning Americans into traitors" or something like that.
